Visual Studio


I would like to know in Visual Studio 2017, what kind of projects with a user interface would be in a native C++ framework so that I can link it to a C++ library (.lib file). Before I was using a CLR project with a UI and tried to link it to a C++ library but could not link it because that application was in a .NET framework.

You can create a static library:

Code linked from a static library becomes part of your app—you don’t have to install another file to use the code.

Or create a dynamic link library:

This creates a separate DLL file other apps can use.
